As the second Sustainable Development Goal (SDG), End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture must be achieved in all countries, including those with limited resources. The Hexahelix collaboration (including academics, the government, the private sector, farmers, non-governmental organizations, and the media) has acted as an example of inclusive cooperation in Indonesia's resource-constrained region. This model will facilitate product innovation for sustainable agriculture: the needs and problems of the community will be studied by academics in collaboration with the private and public sectors, implemented and supervised by non-governmental organizations and graduates, and promoted through the media. A strategy for inclusive innovation is a research cooperation between academia and industry or government to solve an issue in the community or industry, including the sharing of resources. The research must develop a business model and result in a teaching factory or product sold by micro-enterprises and smallholder farmers to the community. In addition to research, tailor-made training collaboration across stakeholders is a strategic initiative to increase agricultural extension capacity building prior to training for front-line farmers. Moreover, inclusive social partnership (social capitals) has demonstrated positive effects for women in building a food resilience system, particularly during crises, in order to achieve food security and nutrition needs.
